a couple of weeks ago in a full-throated defense, even angry defense of susan rice. but another meeting that susan rice had today was with senator bob corker of tennessee. yesterday he told reporters in the hallways that he thought she would be a better democratic committee chair than secretary of state. he was very careful not to say one way or the other how he would vote if she were nominated. but he did say a warning for the president. >> i would just ask that the president step back away from all of the buzz around this particular situation and take a deep breath and decide who is the best secretary of state for our country at this time when we have so many issues to deal with. >> reporter: the point that he made is that he and other senators view the role of secretary of state differently from other cabinet posts where traditionally senators tend to give senators the benefit of doubt that they could have whomever they want in their cabinet when they seat the secretary of state differently. another point of controversy in these meetings that susan rice has been having has nothing to
dome, and other u.s.-israeli missile defense programs. i'm sunling that that is something that the u.s. as well as the israelis certainly were talking about to actually bolster that defense system. >> it's worked rather well so far, that iron dome. it's israeli developed, but it's funded, in part, in large part, by the united states to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars so far. as part of this package deal, it looks like the u.s. is making a further commitment. the president of the united states to the prime minister of israel. that funding will continue, and the israelis have been pretty grateful about it. when i spoke to the israeli president shimon peres this morning, suzanne, he said that there would be a lot more israeli deaths, a lot more israeli injuries if it wasn't for this iron dome system that the u.s. has helped israel with in terms of funding and some technology development, and he was grateful to the united states. he was very profusive in his praise of president obama, and when i said to simon peres that it was only a few weeks ago that mitt romney, the republ
of the things that the health sector and energy sector and even defense has learned, when you get ahead of it, you can help the to shape the conversation the way you can't if you're on the back end responding. back end responding in any context you're at the bottom of that conversation. >> you work directly with teachers. given the tenor of the conversation around for-profits i have got to suspect many. teachers you reach out to or come into contact with probably have mixed feelings about for-profits. what kind of reception has learnzillion gotten and how do you drive the conversation the way jim suggested where it is about focusing on what serves kids well and alleviating concerns in that kind of framework? >> yee. actually let me start with the second part and move to the first part because i think what jim's jim is pointing out in terms of incentives the government plays an important role. if there is threat of that sort of response from the government, i think that that in itself then creates incentives for different actors within the industry to act differently. one thing interesting fro
. >> the aircraft will be front line of defense for the next 50 years is here at the marine corps air scaition yuma. >> it's an honor. and i can't say enough about the 116 marines i have it's their hard work that makes all this possible. gregg: three f-35 fighters have arrived at the base. 13 more to come over the next year. heather: a green car maker has sued the government over what is described as crony capitalism. the company says that the energy department intentionally stalled its loan applications and those of other startups to force them out of business and protect companies favored about it administration. john fund is the national affairs columnist for the "national review." this sounds like a cool car, an inflatable car made from expanded foam. but it's a small startup company. they say thanks to crony capitalism they can't get the loan that they deserve. do you think they deserve a loan? >> i don't think any car company deserves a loan. we saw what happened when general motors became government motors. it hasn't worked out well. ronald reagan was right, when he warned businesses seeking
the bed. stuart: a defense was charles payne gets grilled by john stewart on the daily show but after the break charles gets a chance to respond. stay right there. stuart: charles payne got roasted by john stuart on a daily show last night. >> it is a stretch, an amazing stretch to try to pin this on walmart. i can't think of the worst target. >> i believe that is walmart's slogan. think of the worst target. you were being callously dismissive of the working conditions in bangladesh to score points against american unions. charles: don't think the people in bangladesh don't need those jobs as well. we like to victimize everyone in this country when it comes to motivation which is being assaulted. >> you're first argument seems to be they died in a fire but they had jobs. stuart: it is funny but they chalked it up and you weren't talking in that frame of reference at all. charles: i started off ironically comparing this to the triangle -- factory fire in 1911 and gave the unions props because we did need unions and better conditions but i also said because unions did the thing on black
they will put to her is who told you to say that, right? >> right. susan rice's defense to date i was given this set of talking points by somebody and i simply repeated them. now, there's a substantial question whether that's the right way to behave, but let's leave that aside for a minute and say, that is just, assume that is what actually happened. the real question is, did she talk to anybody else once she was given these talking points? did she question where they came from? did she try and penetrate beneath the analysis? did she talk to president obama before she went on those five sunday morning talk shows? did she talk to the national security advisor. martha: here is senator mccain as he heads into this meeting. he has been a very visible presence on this whole story and, you know one thing to mention in the context what you're saying. we heard from general petraeus, she says that the comments came from intel. general petraeus says the comments came from intel as he was head of the cia at the time including specific references to al qaeda being involved. so another question for her
